Sharing in Christ’s Suffering and Glory (Part 3) | 1 Peter 4:15–19
Hear the final of three messages from 1 Peter 4:12–19 aimed at grasping Peter’s call to not simply suffer, but to share Christ’s sufferings. Stan closes this trio of sermons with a look at verses 15–19.
“But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And ‘If the righteous is scarcely saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?’ Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.” 1 Peter 4:15–19
